#FridayFictioneers Orbs

I work on poetry over at A Full Cup of Tea, but dabble in some short stories and flash fiction here with the FRIDAY FICTIONEERS. Every Friday authors from around the world gather to share their 100-word stories based on the photo prompt hosted by Rochelle Wisoff. We offer support, constructive criticism, and encouragement to each other. Readers are encouraged to comment. My contribution for the week follows the photo prompt below…

Today’s haunting is inspired by the many tales world-wide of vampires or blood suckers, particularly the Romanian Vârcolac  a vampire/werewolf. Though I went with the more pop culture version that the dual vampire werewolf here today, it’s because we’ll visit that other iconic ghoul of pop culture tomorrow-the werewolf.
